Harness Racing Australia congratulates Im Themightyquinn NZ and connections on his induction into the Inter Dominion Hall of Fame.

With three wins in consecutive grand finals of the Inter Dominion Pacing Championships (2011, 2012, 2013), the remarkable pacer  Im Themightyquinn NZ has joined his peers in the Hall of Fame which was established in 2005, to recognize and celebrate outstanding contributions and achievements made in this Championship arena.

Noted for a racing style characterised by a trademark sprint from the back of the field to the finish line, “Quinny” has scored over 50 wins and 30 placings from 101 starts, with some $4.3m in prize-money in just five years of racing. Strong performances in both Australia and New Zealand feature in his career to date, which includes thirteen Group One victories.  He has also been recognised with many prestigious awards including Harness Horse of the Year (2011, 2012), plus Grand Circuit Champion (2011, 2013).

“Quinny” joins other notable performers such as Blacks A Fake, I Can Doosit NZ and Our Sir Vancelot NZ in the honours list, and owners - Karen Hall, Beth Richardson, Glen Moore, Gary Ralston, Mark Congerton, Joe Barber and Henry McManus - together with trainer Gary Hall (Snr) and driver Gary Hall (Jnr) – were thrilled with his inclusion.  They believe “he’s an absolute champion”.
